Ten Kisses to Scandal - Review

Ten Kisses to Scandal
by Vivienne Lorret

What they say: The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule—never fall in love with the client. However, they never said anything about kissing a rake…

Briar Bourne’s matchmaking career could be summed up in two words—comic disaster. Unless she can learn about the irresistible forces that draw men and women together, her professional future looks rather bleak. But Briar has an intriguing plan—enlisting London’s most irredeemable rake to teach her everything he knows about attraction. Given his notorious reputation, it’s no surprise that Nicholas Blacklowe, the Earl of Edgemont, requests one thing in exchange for his tutelage. For every lesson, he wants a kiss in return. And what harm could there be in a simple kiss? After all, Briar would never fall for a scoundrel…

Nicholas has no romantic notions about love, and no intention of changing his ways. He’s only helping Briar so that she can find the perfect bride for his jilted cousin. Yet Briar is so clever, so curious, so candid—so blasted tempting—that soon, Nicholas can’t stop wondering what it might be like if he was irresistible to her.

Ten lessons. Ten kisses. And a million ways to fall hopelessly, scandalously in love.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I seem to be on a historical romance binge at the moment, but I really liked Ten Kisses to Scandal. It has a real Emma vibe going on.

Briar is sweet and funny. I read the book during a particularly dark and rainy day but found myself laughing along at her antics and forgetting the cold.

I liked the agency matchmaker element and how seemingly bad Briar was at it. Briar is an interesting mix of respectable lady and feminist - she'd definitely work as a modern Rom-Com heroine.

Nicholas both intrigued and infuriated me. He has all the attributes a of classic historical romance hero but there were times I wanted to shake some sense into him!

I haven't read any of Vivienne Lorret's other books (unless unknowingly under a pen name) but will certainly look out for her stories in the future.

4 Stars in my Sky!
